Featured Article: InStyle US 2013 Covers Recap


Ariel Foxman as InStyle US editor in chief is still keeping the magazine’s trademarks on the cover: white background, white masthead logo with colored panel, and hot in-the-moment celebrities. We don’t mind those three, the only thing they should fix, in our opinion, is the amount of headlines. It’s to packed like the American edition of Marie Claire and Vogue. We just wish that the great images of the cover star wasn’t covered by the awkwardly placed headlines, especially on the hair.

The perfect cover example would be Zooey Deschanel‘s April issue. They put the majority of the headlines on one side, with small amount of text on the other side. But then again, text placement is always depends on the image they picked as the cover itself. They could do better, but we still appreciate what they’ve done this year.

On celebrity side, they chose actresses who got big movies/series/project coming out close to the magazine published date such as Amanda Seyfried who starred in Les Miserables, trio of Rachel Weisz, Mila Kunis, and Michelle Williams who were promoting Oz The Great and Powerful, Zooey Deschanel of New Girl, Julianne Moore of Carrie remake, Taylor Swift who performed on Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show two days ago, and The Hunger Games‘ leading girl, Jennifer Lawrence (the cover was shot before she cut her hair).

Michaelangelo di Battista, Giampaolo Sgura, and Dusan Reljin are the three photographers who were hired by InStyle to shot their covers in 2013. Italian born di Battista photographed the March issue with Rachel, Mila and Michelle, May issue with Emily Blunt, September issue with Drew Barrymore, and December issue with Jennifer Lawrence.

Fellow Italian Giampaolo Sgura shot the April issue with Zooey Deschanel, August with Olivia Wilde, October with Julianne Moore, and November with Taylor Swift. Last but not least, Dusan Reljin, who was born in Serbia and is a Norwegian citizen, snapped the same amount of covers for the magazine with cover stars Amanda Seyfried, Jessica Alba, Selena Gomez, and Salma Hayek.

Featured Article: InStyle UK 2013 Covers Recap


InStyle UK really stepping up their covers this year. Even though they still use their signature soft pale mastheads and headlines, but the cover star choice, the styling and the pose were perfect!

They started with Academy Award-nominated actress Jessica Chastain who looks amazing in cropped top and fiery hair posing in front of Micaela Rossato‘s lens for February issue. New York based Rossato (who was born in Cordoba, Argentina) also photographed two other cover slots with Rebecca Hall and Naomi Watts, which we love.

We also love the following covers featuring model Agyness Deyn (by Rankin), Taylor Swift (by Karen Collins), Zoe Saldana (by Damon Heath), and Kate Bosworth (by Cedric Buchet). The rest of the cover stars this year are singer Cheryl Cole (by David Vasiljevic), and three brilliant actresses: Chloë Grace Moretz, Drew Barrymore, and Julianne Moore who were snapped by Sofia Sanchez & Mauro Mongiello, Michelangelo di Battista, and Giampaolo Sgura respectively.

The only glitch was on the first issue of 2013. The worst cover of the year, or even in their history, goes to Gwyneth Paltrow’s January issue by Giampaolo Sgura. See the image here, and you’ll see what we are talking about. Worst photoshop, ever!

Featured Article: Vanity Fair 2013 Covers Recap


Vanity Fair started this year with one of our favourite covers from them. Some of the world’s funniest comedians and comediennes (we are talking about Jim Carrey, Melissa McCarthy, Chris Rock, Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig, and Maya Rudolph amongs others!) were posed in front of Mark Seliger lens with hilariously ridiculous outfits. Not to mention that Judd Apatow guest edited the issue. So, it was a perfect Comedy Issue!

Another favourite from Vanity Fair is the August issue with first time cover star, Scandal‘s Kerry Washington who really deserves more major magazine front page slots in the future. She posed in a sexy white cut out bikini, half underwater by Norman Jean Roy. American actress Jennifer Lawrence landed the February issue before her Oscar winning moment (who can forget that historical time when she slipped on the stage!) and her cover came in perfect timing.

More Academy Award-related actors whose featured in this year’s line up were Ben Affleck–who directed this year’s Best Picture winner, Argo–and 2013 Best Actor nominee Bradley Cooper (with the lovely Emma Stone) for March, 1954 Best Actress winner Audrey Hepburn for May, 2009 Best Actor nominee Brad Pitt for June (our least fave cover of the year), and 2003 Best Actress winner Nicole Kidman for December.

The rest of the cover stars are singer Taylor Swift by Peter Lindbergh, actor Channing Tatum by Bruce Weber, the late Princess Diana by Mario Testino, model Kate Upton by Annie Leibovitz (celebrating their 100th anniversary issue), and rapper Jay Z by Mario Testino.

One thing we realized is that VF changed their bold masthead to be more vintage, classic yet slim since October issue. We are not complaining about it, as long as they keep producing good covers and attention-grabbing headlines. Sometimes the headlines were silly and too obvious (i.e The Wife Who Outfoxed Kristen Stewart in December), but it’s our guilty pleasure to see what will they write next.

Featured Article: Glamour UK 2013 Covers Recap


Glamour UK has less covers this year, but with better cover stars. They tapped popular singers (Rita Ora, Jessie J, Nicole Scherzinger, Myleene Klass—who’s famous locally, Taylor Swift and Katy Perry (the cover was “inspired” by the February 1995 issue of Vogue Paris, by Mario Testino).

They also featured the current in demand actresses and actor for their 2013 cover slots (Emma Stone, Diane Kruger, January Jones, Jessica Alba, Gwyneth Paltrow, Daniel Radcliffe, Zooey Deschanel, Rebel Wilson—in a cover inspired by Victoria Beckham’s Glamour US version, and Lily Collins).

Fun fact, there is no Cheryl Cole cover for the first time since 2010! They still heavy on the text, but at least giving us interesting color palette, unlike last year’s. Our favourite from Glamour UK this year would be Jessica Alba’s May issue (love her striking pose), Daniel Radcliffe’s July, and Taylor Swift’s November cover.
